The Avid Reader is a good place to go if you are walking down town and like to look at books. I like it a lot better than Borders because it still has a great selection, but it is nicer and quieter and has a book store feel to it. I feel like i can just pull books of the shelf, and start reading bits of it. They have couches to sit in and even have a chess/checker board. If they don't have a book you want, you don't have to try to look it up at some stupid computer like at borders, just ask and they'll look it up for you.
